Critic Consensus: Cargo takes a refreshingly character-driven approach to the zombie genre that's further distinguished by its Australian setting and Martin Freeman's terrific lead performance.

Critic Reviews for Cargo
Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay it is that I think George A. Romero himself would have liked it.
Co-directors Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke (the latter of whom wrote the screenplay) sacrifice some tension with their more character-based approach, but the cumulative effect is emotionally powerful.
The Australian setting brings a fresh, and epic, quality to this now done-to-death genre, and the directors introduce a few nice new kinks to the zombie mythology.
From Romero's original zombie series to the films it inspired, this type of horror succeeds when it laces its scares with biting social commentary, and Cargo utilizes this formula to great success.
